Zusatztext "It's hard to alight on a response to Lisa Yuskavage's paintings. . . her typologies of formal painting conventions and of the consumerized female body are inseparable from one another! and their interactions produce an ever-increasing complexity : trapped between the familiar and the newly estranged! you keep looping from admiration to irritation! innocent pleasure to revulsion." - BOOKFORUM Informationen zum Autor Christopher Bedford is the Henry and Lois Foster Director of the Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University, Waltham, Mass. Suzanne Hudson is assistant professor of art history and fine arts, University of Southern California, Dornsife. Catherine Lord is professor emerita of art, University of California, Irvine. Siddhartha Mukherjee is assistant professor of medicine, Columbia University, and staff cancer physician, Columbia University Medical Center, New York. Katy Siegel is professor of art history, Hunter College, and chief curator, Hunter College Galleries, New York. Klappentext Accompanying a major exhibition, this stunning survey and important monograph highlights more than two decades' worth of Lisa Yuskavage's brilliant and controversial paintings. Internationally acclaimed American painter Lisa Yuskavage is known for her seductive yet unsettling work, in which cartoony, vulgar, angelic young nymphs are cast within fantastical landscapes or theatrical interiors. In this dazzling monograph she presents the confrontational imagery, luscious paint, and technical virtuosity that are her signature, blurring the boundaries between high art's classic female nudes and their naughty, soft-porn counterparts. This comprehensive new volume offers a rich overview of the artist's work with interpretive essays by leading art historians and an interview with the artist. This will be the definitive book on this important artist.
